lNTRODUCTlON



The increasing demand for nickel requires the need for exploration methods to outline areas of potential nickel concentrations. In the past decade, nickel from lateritic deposits had been the object of many exploration ventures in the Philippines. Little attention was given to nickel sulphide deposits probably because of the relative ease in prospecting for nickeliferous laterites. It is likewise probable that very little is known about nickel sulphide occurrences in our type of geological environment. Except in Acoje Mines no other nickel sulphide deposit is being mined in the country. However, several occurrences are now known and their exploration are in progress.
